Are you interested in websites and content management? Maybe you have been hearing a lot about WordPress, Drupal, DotNetNuke or other CMS software and are having a touch time telling the difference between them all or deciding which one to use. Well, I just recently put forth a proposal to do an Intro to DotNetNuke session for the Charleston BarCamp conference in November. Please take a look and vote it up!
DotNetNuke is the leading open source content management system for the Windows Server platform. More importantly it is an extremely powerful and secure framework on which to build robust websites. And yes, the world of open source can exist and even thrive within the Microsoft environment. From the granular security model which allow system administrators to precisely define website permissions at the site, page or module level to the rich market of third party themes and add-ons, DNN offers a mature environment that rivals or surpasses those on other platforms.
In this session I will give an introduction to DNN and the way it operates. We’ll also look at a few demo sites and discuss their operation. Finally we will talk about DNN in comparison to other website tools like WordPress and Drupal and deal directly, honestly and rabidly with the differences between each and their relative strengths and weaknesses.
When I was a kid, yes 40+ years ago, Hampton Park was home to a zoo that was run down and kind of scary. I am sure it was even worse for the poor animals. And the park itself had become run down too. These days though it is a beautiful place. Lots of flowers, water, birds, walk trails and wonderful people.
I stopped by this morning just to kill some time, check my email, and and gather my thoughts. Well, I did those things but I also snapped a few pictures and got a nice lift from the surroundings. Sometimes we forget how beautiful the places in our own home town are.
